Illumination Road Debuts New Single, ‘It Looks Like They Got To You (Too)’

Independent rock band Illumination Road debuted its new single and music video this week.

The band premiered its new single, ‘It Looks Like They Got To You (Too)‘ Tuesday. It is available to stream and download through all digital platforms.

The song’s premiere comes more than two months after the premiere of the band’s then latest single, ‘the Modern World’ and its video. That song is available to stream and download through SpotifyiTunes, and Apple Music.

The musical arrangement featured in ‘It Looks Like They Got To You (Too)’ changes things up from the band’s previous single. Instead of the classic rock approach and sound featured in that song, this song is more of a blues rock style composition. It is easily comparable in its sound and style to works from the likes of Stevie Ray Vaughan, Joe Bonamassa, and Kenny Wayne Shepherd.

The lyrical theme featured alongside that blues-rock musical arrangement is left up to interpretation. Bassist Chad Shlosser discussed the song’s lyrical theme in a somewhat cryptic fashion during an interview with Elmore Magazine, stating, “This cut, ‘It Looks Like They Got To You (Too),’ is the smashing yet groovy second single. Following the story line from the first single, where we’re introduced to ‘The Modern World,’ we’re now feeling the effects of this new way of life and how it’s cutting to the core of all of us.”

Illumination Road Debuts New Single, ‘The Modern World,’ Companion Video

Independent rock band Illumination Road debuted its new single and music video this week.

The band premiered its new single, ‘The Modern World’ Wednesday, along with the song’s companion video. The song is available to stream and download through Spotify, iTunes, and Apple Music.

The musical arrangement featured in ‘The Modern World’ presents a sound that leaves audiences imagining what Train would sound like if it was a southern/stoner rock act, what with the use of the guitars, keyboards and vocals. Speaking of the vocals, the fuzzed effect makes comprehension of the lyrics difficult without a lyrics sheet to reference. Though, even without comment in the press release distributed about the debut of the song and its video, one can infer at least lightly, that the song is a contemplative work that focuses on the current state of the world.

The video for ‘The Modern World’ features the band performing its single against a desert backdrop as a woman makes her way on foot and by car through the landscape.

Bassist Chad Shlosser discussed the video treatment during a recent interview.

“The video for this song came together really only because of our amazing filmmaker friends from Silver Sky,” said Shlosser. “We had a rough concept in mind but they came in with the last minute vision and miraculously knocked out the shoot in a single day without sacrificing any artistic value. I think each shot is so provocative and beautiful and lends so much to what we were feeling with it. We’re fortunate enough to have our home base be Escape Studios in Pioneertown, California (@escape) and wanted to showcase the beauty of this land that inspires it all so we shot the entire thing here. Shout out to the visionary, Rocco Gardner for that!”

Shlosser also talked about the song’s musical arrangement during his interview.

“‘The Modern World’ has been through a few production steps before we landed here,” he said. [Front man] Chris [Ayden] and I had taken it from a very progressive rock type of track and attempted to simplify things and focus on the vocals. We then sat in the studio with our dear friend, Matt Sorum (Guns ‘N Roses, Velvet Revolver) who worked on the arrangement with us which pulled the whole thing into focus. A bit more production and the addition of Greg Cahill on Hammond and piano and Michael Johnson on drums and we felt we totally nailed our sound that is now stretching across the entire album we’re finishing up right now”.
